But he had managed to flee every time.Police came to know during the investigation that he had been hopping from one village to another in Hasnabad and its adjoining places to avoid getting arrested. The reason behind taking shelter in a hideout in the bordering area was that he was in search of the moment when he could flee to the neighbouring country. Investigation has further revealed that he had initiated his business of selling chicken a few years ago. He later stepped into the illegal trade of selling dead chicken to eateries and made fast money.The police have started questioning him and are trying to find out names of other people who were involved in the racket. Sources said that the police are also going to prepare a list containing names of the eateries to which Kausar had supplied carcass meat, following which they would take further steps.
Your privacy on Facebook and Twitter may be at risk even if you have never been on social media or have deleted your account, a study suggests. Individual choice has long been considered a bedrock principle of online privacy, said scientists from the University of Vermont in the US and the University of Adelaide in Australia. However, the study shows that if a person leaves a social media platform – or never joined – the online posts and words of their friends still provide about 95 per cent of the “potential predictive accuracy,” even without any of that person’s data.

With this data, the researchers showed that information within the Twitter messages from eight or nine of a person’s contacts make it possible to predict that person’s later tweets as accurately as if they were looking directly at that person’s Twitter feed. The research raises profound questions about the fundamental nature of privacy – and how, in a highly networked society, person’s choices and identity are embedded in that network.

Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 4 min read May 22, 2015 I spend a lot of time working in and around early stage startups that have figured out how to bootstrap their way through early IT needs. The good news is that technology has advanced to a point where many of the early needs are ready to be simply plugged into your site. In fact, I feel so strongly about the current ability to put plug-and-play technologies to use, that I’ve written about it quite frequently and have practiced it for the last year and a half with BottleKeeper.However, there does come a time when, well, you’re in over your head and need to bring in the seasoned IT professionals. “When” is a question that is and can only be appropriate for your business, but let’s look at a few warning signs that you need help sooner than later.1. The site crashes and you don’t have a clue where to start.Having your website go down is one of the most terrifying and frustrating things imaginable as a new company. The good news is that it’s not typically going to happen early on because you’re not driving enough traffic to really push the system. The bad news is that it’s inevitable once you are driving real traffic, which is precisely when you need to site up and running most.Related: 9 Tips to Make Your Ecommerce Business Wildly SuccessfulEarly on the fix can be as easy as calling your hosting provider to get help, but as your site grows and you plug more necessary components into it, things get a lot more complicated. As you grow, you’ll likely need to move away from early stage host providers such as GoDaddy — which are great because they’re inexpensive — into larger, more flexible and scalable systems such as Rackspace. This does come with an enormous technical learning curve as all of the pretty interfaces and help screens go out the window. You’re now in the proverbial “big leagues”.2. You don’t know what FTP means.In reality, FTP — or file transfer protocol — is quite simple, but requires you to have an understanding of the framework that the consumer facing aspect of your site is built on. This starts with your root folder and goes down through content, themes, cache, plugins and a litany of additional necessary files and folders.The positive aspect is that it’s not super complicated to figure out, the negative is that if you do something wrong, you might kill your site — possibly irreparably if you don’t have the appropriate backups, which would result in a complete restart. Yes, I’ve had the pleasure of three complete rebuilds due to my rookie errors.Related: 10 Tips for Finding and Hiring a Top DeveloperYou won’t typically need to mess with FTP until you’re out of the early stage hosts as they’ll likely have some version of a C-panel — or user interface — that will give you a better means of making adjustments while you’re not in the actual files, mucking things up. But what you should really look at doing is hiring or contracting someone that has the ability to manage these things for you.3. You’ve grown and are driving substantial traffic.Although every dollar earned is of importance in any stage of a startup, early on the values aren’t quite the same. If you’re generating $500 per day and your site goes down for 12 hours — equivalent to 50 percent of your daily income — you’ll lose $250 — a lot of money but not likely to break your budget. When you are earning $10,000 per day and your site crashes for 12 hours, you’ve lost $5,000. It’s certainly all relative to the startup and stage but that $5,000 pays for 25 to 40 hours of IT help and is likely spoken for in the budget.When you get to this point, your business depends entirely on a live site and you need to put the necessary pieces and infrastructure in place to ensure that it’s as fast and functional as possible — but doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to hire a full time IT person. Instead, look for companies to whom you can outsource your early IT needs, on an as needed basis, until you’re in the position to create a full-time position.Related: 10 Hacks to Help Your Website Generate More Leads, Sales and Revenue This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
